Conditions of Participation

The BaltiCCycle (BC) is not a commercial tour, all organizers are volunteers, and the membership fee collected goes only for covering organizational expenses. Joining the BC you become a part of the team, and we expect from you the goodwill, the right understanding of our principles and rules, as well as the offering assistance when organizers need it.

The BaltiCCycle 2015 tour “Rolling Trolls” – to the Faroe Islands and Iceland – is scheduled for advanced participants having experience in long travels, mountain roads, remote areas and unpredictable weather conditions. You must be prepared for a sudden change of sunny but cool weather to cold, windy and rainy (and vice versa). The average temperature in Iceland is 15.2C in July, and 13.3C in August. The daylight is from mid-May to mid-August and the sun only sets for around 3 hours per day and there is light for the whole 24-hour period; in case of adverse weather to complete the day distance you have to cycle at “night” when winds become quiet. The majority of route follows the asphalt roads though of varying quality. The last part of the route goes through highlands on unsurfaced roads.
The ride is open for everybody but before signing you should think about your potential to complete it not bringing troubles to yourself and others.
BC participants gather for the ride from different countries and continents. We recommend bringing on your bike a national flag or other symbols that local people could see us as international friendly cycling community.


Organizational principles. It is a similar trip to the previous BC tours:


Arrival / Departure. The cost of arrival/departure is not included in the membership fee; you have to arrange transport by yourself. If you are going to join or finish the ride in another place, you have to plan it yourself too. Click here to find the rough recommendations about arrival / departure options. We can pick you up for the additional fee (5 Euro per 10 km) in the radius of 50 km counting the distance both ways. You have to inform us about it at least two days in advance. It will be possible during the whole period to contact the ride organizers by mobile phone or email. Though the ride schedule is already fixed but the real dates can be slightly shifted (plus/minus 1-2 days) because of unexpected obstacles. Have it in your mind when planning your travel.


Transportation of bicycle to the start and back. We can bring the bicycle and other personal luggage to/from the Faroes and Iceland by our BC support van which will start from Vilnius on July 2, and goes through Sweden to take the Smyril Line ferry in Denmark on July 4, arriving to the Faroes on July 5; from Faroes leaving to Iceland on July 8 and arriving to the ride start on July 12. After the ride the support car will leave Reykjavik on August 11. The charge for this service is 70 Euro one way. The number of places is limited.
Another option is to take your bicycle on a plane. Some recommendations how to pack the bike for the plane you can find here.


Visas. Citizens of EU don’t need visas to Faroes as well as Iceland.


Vaccination. It is not required, but always better to vaccinate against Hepatitis A, ticks, Hepatitis B virus, Typhoid fever, Tetanus and Diphtheria. More info – here.


Catering. It depends only on you. It is recommended to bring along a gas stove for preparing meal in the campsites and enough drinkable water and food during the day. If the tap of drinkable water is not available in the campsite, you will find water in our van. The driver of our support car is a cook too, and it will be a possibility to order the breakfast and super paying directly to him.


Necessary equipment and documents:


Children until 18. Children can take part in the ride only together with parents (one or both) or another adult who is authorized by notary to take care and is fully responsible for the juvenile.


Luggage transport during the ride. We recommend carrying the necessary personal stuff in the panniers on your bike. The service of luggage transportation by the support car is limited to 20 kg. The luggage for transportation should be packed to a standard bag (you will receive it after arrival), and it is included in the registration fee. In case of emergency (car accident or some other unexpected circumstances) you should be ready to carry all your stuff on the bike. If you plan to transport any additional bag in the support bus you have to indicate when registering and pay in advance (2 Euro per day).
Neither organizers nor driver are responsible for safety of your luggage. You should insure or protect your luggage against theft personally.


Membership fee17 Euro/day. You have to indicate the number of days you plan to travel in the table of the Registration Form, and your membership fee for the whole tour will be counted automatically. Full membership fee must be paid before June 15, 2015, otherwise it increases by 10% and discount expires.
The membership fee will not be required from the local cyclists who help in organising the ride and will cycle less than 3 days. They have to cover only the sleeping costs. The organizers will appreciate if local participants will purchase a package with ride symbols (T-shirts, flag and sticker).
